    One thought on “Assassins of Alamut

    1. Cody

      Once in a blue moon I discover a book by accident that catches me by surprise and entertains me with a wonderful story. Assassins of Alamut is one of those books. I was browsing and stumbled across this book and found the subject matter quite interesting, so I decided to order it, hoping for the best. This book turned out to be well worth the money. The story tells of Talon, a young Frank who is kidnapped by Middle Eastern assassins and brought into their world, a world that is very foreign to [...]

      During an attack on a caravan, Frankish soldiers are drawn into battle with the Turks. At the same time, a second, smaller group of interlopers snatches fourteen-year-old Talon de Gilles and the priest Jean de Loche and whisks them away from Palestine. Not once during the long journey to Persia is Talon permitted a chance to escape, and he soon learns that a silent captive suffers fewer beatings.There is little Sir Huges de Gilles can do to rescue his son. The only ones who might have a chance a [...]

      Wonderful adventureThis kickoff to a series is full of adventure and historical insight. It is a bit bloated, and the research sometimes gets in the way of the story, but I am waiting to read more of Talon's adventures.

      I love the idea. I like the story and the characters. I'm not so crazy about the style of writing. For me, it doesn't flow and although the settings are exotic I don't come away with a feeling for the locations. The descriptions are lacking somehow. Perhaps a more active editor would have helped. It helped that I read an e version and was able to access the web and see pictures of the landscapes. I read the book hoping for a bit more insight into the culture and times. The second novel succeeds [...]

      A fun adventure story that taught me a lot about 12th century Persia. It's the standard swashbuckling tale of a young Frank who gets kidnapped by assassins and brought up to become one of them. He make friends, falls in love, and battles treacherous foes, meeting victory and tragedy along the way. The book's strong point is it's wealth of geographical, historical, and cultural knowledge. It falls short in that the hero is virtually incapable of making mistakes. He seems too virtuous, strong, and [...]

      Very well crafted exciting novel of the Holy Land at the time of the Crusades. Talon a French nobles young son is captured by the Ismali sect of Muslims. He is raised and trained as an Assassin until he finally regains his freedom, leaving his beloved and his friend behind. The first of a trilogy.

      Ever since my wife-to-be returned from a summer in Iran (1972), I have always been fascinated by that country and its history. Since I also teach Islamic Studies (college professor), I found this book to be an interesting possibility of a very narrow part of Iran's past history. It's not for everyone, and I did not like the ending, but if a second book comes out, I will read it.

    8. Brian Cloyd

      Good read although at times dragged with insignificant detail. At other times didn't provide enough, especially when describing an action area. The ending was a disappointmentBoy doesn't get girl and reader left hanging about final resolution.

      İyi kitaptır, bazı kısımları tarihi gerçekleri çarpıtarak anlatsa da felsefik olarak dahi tatminkardır. Öneririm.
